Huddle Up: Dallas reports to training camp on Saturday, meaning the team will kick off practices uncertain whether or not it will have the services of the league's reigning rushing champ in early September. A resolution is expected in the coming days, as multiple sources said Friday the NFL is nearing the end of its investigation into Elliott's off-field behavior. A short suspension is still expected, so stay tuned. For now, he remains an elite fantasy RB1 who could be had late in the first round.

Huddle Up: Elliott has had several off-field incidents over the last few years and could receive a suspension from the NFL but has been cleared in this incident. Elliott will be a main focal point in the Cowboys offense in 2017 and should still be a No. 1 fantasy running back even if misses a game or two.

Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like much, but it comes at the worst possible time for Elliott, who was reportedly bracing for a short suspension stemming from a domestic situation in 2016. Reports are that he was expecting to be suspended a game or two, and another incident, no matter how minor, doesn't look good for any sort of league reprieve. Elliott is a stud RB1, but he's likely to start falling marginally in traditional drafts. Know the possibilities when taking him so early.

Huddle Up: The mere fact the NFL has dragged its investigation into Elliott this long suggests he is more likely than not to miss some time, although everything is speculative at this point. Early drafters may want to slide him down their cheatsheets a few spots, but a one- or two-game suspension puts him essentially in the same boat as Le'Veon Bell last year, and Bell handsomely rewarded owners who spent a late first-round pick on him. Elliott could easily do the same for his owners and is still very much worth a top-10 pick.
Posted: 7/4/2017 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Those numbers are certainly within Elliott's reach after last season. He'll need 1,369 yards and 10 touchdowns to join that elite group. While he faces potential punishment for an off-field incident, Elliott deserves to be one of the first three to five players drafted.
Posted: 7/3/2017 9:24am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has massive fantasy appeal and upside, but his price tag in fantasy will reflect it just as much. So while it's very possible nothing happens here, you're probably going to have to spend a top-five pick or a copious amount of your auction budget to land him. It's just something to consider when applying the resources to land the stud RB1.
Posted: 6/1/2017 1:18pm ET
Huddle Up: The ramifications of Elliott's case have yet to be determined, but the hope is that either way it will be finalized before the start of the regular season. After taking the league by storm last year, Elliott is already one of the league's best running backs and deserves consideration as one of the first five picks in fantasy drafts.
Posted: 5/24/2017 12:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott could be limited during practice for the next week or two but should be fine for the June minicamp. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL as a rookie and should see a similar workload in 2017. Elliott should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 5/24/2017 9:45am ET
Huddle Up: ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Elliott did not suffer any significant injuries, so this appears to be a precautionary move on the Cowboys' part. Nevertheless, Elliott cannot seem to stay out of the news, as he is still under investigation by the league for allegedly assaulting an ex-girlfriend last summer. Barring another injury or an unexpected turn in the assault case, he should be considered an elite fantasy RB1, but future off-field troubles could easily result in him dropping out of the first five picks in drafts.
Posted: 5/22/2017 2:27pm ET
Huddle Up: How soon the investigation remains to be seen. Barring any punishment from the NFL or the Cowboys, Elliott remains a top-three fantasy running back and should be selected early in the first round.
Posted: 5/8/2017 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: It's interesting that Elliott believes he has to be better at the second level of his runs, considering he led the league in his rookie campaign in rushes of at least 20 or more yards, registering 14 such instances. He also had the second-most runs of 40 or more yards, accomplishing this feat three times. Elliott had a monster first season in the NFL and based on his attitude, he may top that for an encore in his sophomore year.
Posted: 3/18/2017 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The league's investigation hasn't officially been closed, so a punishment of some sort could still be handed down. That being said, he should still be one of the first players off the board in all formats in 2017.
Posted: 3/2/2017 1:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott will be a first-round fantasy draft pick for many years to come as long as he stays healthy. His elite talent combined with the Cowboys' elite offensive line makes sweet music together. As was said earlier, Elliott should be one of the first three to five players taken off draft boards in 2017.
Posted: 3/2/2017 12:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was the best running back in football last year, at least from a yardage standpoint. There's no reason why he shouldn't see the same kind of workload he did in his rookie year. After nearly 2,000 total yards and 16 total touchdowns, Elliott deserves to be one of the first three to five players taken in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Posted: 2/4/2017 1:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott had an outstanding rookie season and led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,631. He was also in the top five in carries and touchdowns. He will continue to be a main focus on offense for the Cowboys and should be a first-round pick in all leagues.
Posted: 1/15/2017 5:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Dallas came out on the losing end, but Elliott delivered another strong performance. He should be a top-five pick in all formats next season.
Posted: 1/11/2017 8:44am ET
Huddle Up: It's a good sign he was able to practice, but there is still a possibility of whiplash or something else popping up in the next day or two. Monitor him the next couple of days, but he's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Posted: 1/11/2017 6:43am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke should be fine, but keep an eye on him the next couple of days to be sure. He's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Posted: 1/5/2017 11:00am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott led the NFL in rushing during the regular season with 1,631 yards and 322 carries but appears to be ready for even more work in the playoffs. He will be a must-start option in all fantasy playoff leagues as long as the Cowboys are playing.
Posted: 1/1/2017 2:22pm ET
Huddle Up: It wouldn't have been likely for Elliott to break that record had he played, but Elliott still had a fantastic rookie season. He is a solid RB1 with a decent chance at NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
Posted: 12/26/2016 9:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was rested for a good chunk of the second half, as the Cowboys had a healthy lead. It also allowed them to have Darren McFadden knock off some rust after a long layoff. Zeke is well short of the single-season rushing record by a rookie, and it's unlikely he'll come close to the 177 yards he needs to pass Eric Dickerson (1,808 yards, 1983).
Posted: 12/26/2016 7:54am ET
Huddle Up: This will be subject to change because the Cowboys have nothing to play for as far as seeding goes. The Detroit Lions could still be playing for the division crown next week. Elliott has had a big workload this year, and there's no reason for him to see his normal work. Monitor this outlook through the week, but he's probably not going to be an RB1 you can bank on.
Posted: 12/19/2016 5:26am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke is the real deal and a legit RB1 behind that offensive line.
Posted: 12/1/2016 9:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott had a couple of other big runs called back, but he still topped 100 total yards for the ninth time in the last 10 games. Keep building around him in standard formats and DFS games.
Posted: 11/29/2016 7:01am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke is on pace for 353 carries in what has probably been a bigger rookie season than even his most favorable prognosticators expected. At 1,199 yards and 11 TDs, he's an elite option at the position against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night.
Posted: 11/24/2016 5:44pm ET
Huddle Up: There was talk of Elliott hitting a rookie wall after a mediocre showing against Baltimore last week, but he continues to top 100 total yards on a weekly basis and has multiple scores in three of his last four games. Leave him in your lineup enjoy the ride.
Posted: 11/20/2016 3:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott actually had a poor game by his standards, including no touches in the second quarter. To be fair, the stat line was still pretty good, he is a rookie, and he was facing a top rushing defense. He'll look to get back on track against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving.
Posted: 11/13/2016 8:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott helped plenty of fantasy owners to a victory with his huge performance. He is not only a rookie of the year favorite, but he could get serious MVP consideration at this rate. Either way, he has been a fantasy MVP as he is already over 1,000 yards rushing and he has nine rushing touchdowns and one receiving score. He'll look to keep it going against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.
Posted: 11/6/2016 1:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has rushed for at least 90 yards in each of his last six games but scored a touchdown for the first time in three games against Cleveland. Elliott is one of the top runners in the NFL and is a must-start option in all leagues.
Posted: 10/16/2016 10:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was drafted as a No. 1 fantasy tailback early on draft day and he has certainly looked the part. Fantasy owners are going to miss him in Week 7 when the team is on a bye.
Posted: 10/9/2016 10:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was selected in the first round in most fantasy leagues and he got off to a decent, but not great start. Lately he has looked like one of the best, if not the best, fantasy options in the game. He has three straight rushing performances of 134 or more yards with three touchdowns.
Posted: 9/28/2016 7:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has looked a lot better, and he shined in the primetime game against the Chicago Bears in Week 3, rolling for 140 yards (his first 100-yard game) and also a career-best 20 receiving yards. As long as he can nip his fumbling issues in the bud, he will be a legitimate RB1 in fantasy leagues for many years to come.
Posted: 9/26/2016 6:48am ET
Huddle Up: The only thing missing was a paydirt trot, but it was a solid effort and showed he's capable of being a workhorse. He faces off against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4, and he'll be in the high-end RB2 area.
Posted: 9/20/2016 8:44am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke was pretty good in Week 2 other than the ball insecurity issues. He'll be a high-end RB2 against the Chicago Bears this week.
Posted: 9/18/2016 7:40pm ET
Huddle Up: That might be the public position, but you can bet your bottom dollar the team will be working on ball security with Elliott going forward. Still, it seems like he has the confidence of the staff and there are no immediate concerns about his workload being cut. Fantasy owners like that.
Posted: 9/7/2016 10:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott is likely to share the load against the New York Giants in Week 1 with veteran Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar. It's just an estimation, but look for something along the lines of a 50-30- 20 split between the three backs with Elliott seeing the majority of the touches.
Posted: 9/6/2016 2:21pm ET
Huddle Up: No charges means no suspension for Elliott, so his promising rookie season remains intact. He'll be Dallas's primary running back as long as he's in good health and should be drafted as an RB1 in all formats for those who have not drafted yet.
Posted: 8/25/2016 9:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was as good as advertised in his first action, and it was easy to see why he is going in the first round of most fantasy drafts.
Posted: 8/25/2016 6:50pm ET
Huddle Up: While no rookie is a sure thing, Elliott has all the makings of a fantasy star. He is a RB1 in any format, and he is worth grabbing toward the end of the first round.
Posted: 8/23/2016 9:05am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has been one of the most hyped players this offseason, and it's understandable for how dynamic he was at Ohio State and the great offensive line in front of him. However, there is considerable risk in taking him as an RB1 with no experience and no safety net of proof that he can hold up for a full NFL season.
Posted: 8/22/2016 3:21pm ET
Huddle Up: It is now known how much playing time Elliott will receive if he is active for the game, but it is a good sign that he is close to playing. He should receive a majority of the carries this season and should be a considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/20/2016 5:19am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has dealt with the hamstring injury for over a week but has been able to return to practice recently. He may see limited playing time in the next preseason game but appears to be on track for Week 1. He should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues as long as he is healthy.
Posted: 8/17/2016 9:03am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott is the most celebrated fantasy rookie out there and the centerpiece of the "Keep Tony Romo Healthy" movement in Dallas, so there's no reason to push him with the opener still almost a month off. He's in a great position to succeed as an RB1; now he just needs to get healthy and stay that way.
Posted: 8/16/2016 10:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Good next step for the top fantasy rookie, and the next one will be seeing him play in the preseason. Stay tuned ...
Posted: 8/15/2016 3:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Good to see some signs of progress from the fourth-overall pick who missed the Cowboys' preseason opener Saturday, but it's still too early to tell if he'll be able to make it back for Game 2. Needless to say, more than a few fantasy GMs are eager to get their first glimpse of Elliott in game action.
Posted: 8/10/2016 1:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Since he hasn't practiced, the Cowboys won't put him out there, and there's no sense in risking further injury for a meaningless contest. Elliott remains a mid-range RB1 for the bold, and you'll have to pay the price to land him.
Posted: 8/4/2016 8:26am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott probably will miss the first preseason game, but it appears he will be fine for the start of the regular season. He is expected to receive most of the carries this season and should be selected in the first round of drafts.
Posted: 8/3/2016 1:29pm ET
Huddle Up: This likely won't amount to anything more than an early-camp hammy footnote, but we are talking about the top rookie -- and one of the top RBs -- coming off the board in drafts here, so it's going to get more than than its fair share of attention.
